Since its inception nine years ago, the PMI Pearl City Chapter (PMIPCC) has taken up several initiatives for community development. On 3 February, the chapter hosted an exciting mega event as part of its community development program. The Student Leadership Competency Building (SLCB) initiative, a movement unveiled in the year 2005, has progressively grown in outreach and momentum. SLCB was the brainchild of chapter thought leaders, Mr. V Srinivasa Rao, ex-president, PMIPCC and past-chairman of PMI Team India, and Mr. A Suresh Chandra, president, PMIPCC.

This year, the SLCB activities culminated into the Gyan Lahari Student Leadership Conference and International Student Leadership Day (ISLD). The event was held at Shilpakala Vedika, Hyderabad, and about 2,000 delegates, including 1700+ students, corporate, parents, teachers, academicians,and government representatives attended it. The main focus was on students, who had come from urban, rural, and tribal areas of Andhra Pradesh and around.
Mr. V Srinivasa Rao emphasized the four As: aspiration, attitude, ability, and action that are necessary to improve our quality of life.
Subsequently, students from the SLCB participating institutions showcased the power of leadership through innovative skits and speeches. There were excellent speeches on leadership in Telugu and English and a skit showcasing the evils that plague society and which directly affect students—juvenile delinquency, child labor, and alcoholism.
